:::::: Hannes Kretzer ::::::

“In search of the perfect acoustic mirror for his perception of the world Harnes Kretzer started early to collect and distort sound effects until they fitted into his mental universe. Synthesizer pioneers as Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream were his first spiritual compagnions on his experimental encounter with sounds.

Soon Hannes Kretzer realized the confinement of this synthetic cosmos and enlarged his interest toward neo-classical ambient soundscapes. He discovered the richness of composers as Eric Satie, Nils Frahm and Dustin O’Halloran. Especially in their inconspicuous fragments Harnes Kretzer found the diversity of acoustic perception he was looking for. The art of Lo-Fi provided a solid ground for an immense variety of musical journals.
The warm and mellow sound of a very old piano tempted him to explore the possibilities of this acoustic instrument. He tought himself to master and control the richness of the sounds, replayed the sounds on old tape recorders and entangled them with field recordings, noisy children’s toys, drawling synthesizers and squeeking piano stools.

The audience perceives the process of acoustic development and becomes part of the evolution of the sound concept. This implementation is one of the most relevant features in the compositions of Hannes Kretzer.”


:::::: CEEYS ::::::

CEEYS are the multitalented instrumentalists and musicians Sebastian and Daniel Selke.
Combining a shared passion for music and an impressive resume working alongside fellow luminaries Ólafur Arnalds and Peter Broderick, they release their upcoming album HAUSMUSIK on Oct 9th 2020. Their 5th duo production again quickly amassed an organic following of listeners and got acclaim from tastemakers like Mary Anne Hobbs and BBC Radio 6:

“It’s an extraordinary piece of music. It’s the work of two brothers, Sebastian on cello and Daniel on piano, and together
they play as CEEYS. This is a project which is written about the buildings that surrounded them in their childhood,
growing up on the streets of East Berlin.“

They already started planning the 4th edition of their up and coming Q3Ambientfest – a music happening for contemporary music.
